This class is a combination of lecture and hands-on study. During each class, students will look at collage work done by artists and examine their methods, create their own collage and examine how collage changes the way we view an image. We will discuss the role of collage in contemporary art and art history, and why artists might choose this medium over painting or drawing. This class is open to people at all levels.

Earrings are a quick way to learn new techniques, practice what you already know, and experiment with color and design. Learn how to make earwires and design your own. Your investment in time and materials is small but the fashion payoff is tremendous. You’ll need your own tools: round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, and flush (or semi-flush) cutters. You will also need these materials: a spool/coil of 20 gauge wire from the craft or bead store, and some beads with holes large enough to accommodate the wire.
